Well UK distributor is Asmodee so it will never be in stock. I kid. Mostly. £84.99 for the two player starter and £34.99 for Men at Arms is what I've seen so far. Not thrilled but alas the world we live in.

If I had to pick a way to absolutely kill enthusiasm and player growth post-release over here that would be pretty damn high on the list. That sucks. Presumably they've got the mainland European distribution as well?

ASOIAF from CMON has been in a lull for months purely down to this.

To be fair, ASOIAF have distribution changed mid-stride. I'm seeing people say its the transition that caused the issues, not the lack of desire to treat the game right. Seems like now that its done releases are being accelerated and are getting firm dates.

I've been very unimpressed with any mini games distribution by Asmodee so far (although whether that's been down to them or the companies they're distribution for is less clear),

but hopefully they will be better able to handle this one

That's certainly made matters worst although the stock issues UK/EU side were present long before the transition (believe they were Asmodee from the start). Either case, I've heard little but cynicism and general contempt for them for any range they've distributed that wasn't their own product.

Yeah, Asmodee seem like a terrible choice, but sometimes a terrible choice is the only choice you have...

Considering one of the other options was WarCradle, I'd say they dodged a massive bullet there!

Dodge a bullet to roll into a napalm strike?

I'm being glib; I've not had a huge amount of experience with Warcradle beyond their own studio stuff like Wild West and general use of Wayland (which I've not had a huge amount of issue with).

Just hope this isn't doomed to trickle out from the get go because distribution options are limited to varying flavours of turd.

Worst case scenario, all is available direct from their web store

WarCradle are the napalm strike XD they kill games they "distribute" because they don't distribute to anyone but their sister company Wayland Games, where they discount the gak out of it. It nailed Bushido firmly in its coffin.

Bushido is doing just fine and trying to get an American distributor. 3rd edition “Risen Sun” should release around Gencon with the beta rules out as free downloads already. All new starter sets also available then as well.

on the forum. Obviously

Still no Dweghom battle report, but there is a Noble Lord model

Spoiler:


"Observing the history of the Hundred Kingdoms and their nobles, it is perhaps no surprise that the vast majority of their houses have strong military traditions. When the Long Winter receded and humanity ventured far from the shores of the Bitter Sea, the Orders were stretched too thin to control the nobility. Soon, the paradigm of ‘might is right’ resurfaced among both aspiring and established rulers. To command swords became a matter of survival, to command them effectively promised a long rule and conquest. While the legitimacy of the Divine Right of Kings offered by the Theist Church has swayed many, the old nobility knows that power flows from the edge of the blade.

To this day, the training of a noble’s heirs in all matters military is not just tradition, but standard practice. The source of a noble’s education may vary vastly from one to another and, while theory and strategy are essential parts of their education, this is no pampered or abstract training. Many a present noble lord was once a squire, no different than any other, having spent hours taking care of their sponsor’s horse and equipment and earning their knighthood by blooding their blade. For those whose connections or wealth allow it, this is substituted by years of service as cadets in one of the Imperial Military Academies of Argem, where they undergo vigorous physical training, while also receiving the best possible education on matters of strategy, siege warfare and military logistics.

Whatever the specifics, few question that many a noble’s right to command does not derive simply from the blood coursing through their veins. The prestigious martial tradition of the Hundred Kingdoms demands leaders whose men believe in, whose training and experience foster confidence and whose skill demands admiration. A Noble Lord who issues orders can reasonably expect his men to storm the battlement, one that leads from the front knows his men would brave the gates of hell."

Sounds good, hopefully they'll divide the bounty equally between the days and not give it all away on the Friday

They look great. Nords are definitely my most anticipated faction. I am very much hoping they aren't all the bare-chested barbarian look, though.

I'm at the EXPO but busy as crap! XD will take more photos later but for now, check this out..

The nords are ancient relatives of the 1st attempts of the Spire to weaponize humans. Their force of free will made them unsuitable so that line of development was disposed of... nearly.

Many many millennia later, the Nord have evolved into a entire civilisation with their own traditions and religions completely separate to those of more common lands....

There are definitely ani-morphs at the back there... wolfmen?

The models were fantastic in person at Expo. Went there first thing on Friday morning and despite demo tables being free, asking for a demo and returning multiple times at different times both quiet and busy I never got a game so... no sprue for me.

I was disappointed. I will still buy the minis but the customer service was a tad meh at Expo I must say.

that was basically my experience today, happy to show off the painted minis and some of the unpainted sprues but no interest in demoing (or handing out goodies)

they do look good in person tho

As you've probably seen by now, it's in the videos posted above.
